As per SBU's policies, employees will be expected to have a regular in-person presence at the official work location. Employees should not expect to be approved to telecommute on a full-time or near full-time basis.

Since 1971, New York Sea Grant, a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York, has been one of 34 university-based programs working with coastal communities under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Sea Grant College Program.
